New Castle boys hold off Grove City in PIAA second round

New Castle coach Ralph Blundo reacts as Grove City pulls ahead at the end of the first half last night.

The start time for tonight’s New Castle-Hickory PIAA Class 4A boys basketball game has been changed.

The start time was moved from 8 p.m. to 7 p.m. The game will still be played at Slippery Rock University’s Morrow Fieldhouse.

The Mars-Meadville PIAA Class 5A playoff game,a which was set for 6 p.m. at Slippery Rock University, was moved to 7 p.m. at Sharon High School, allowing for the New Castle-Hickory game time to be moved up from 8 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Both games were expected to bring in a large crowd to Slippery Rock University and the venue might not have been large enough to accommodate all four fan bases. 

Neshannock’s PIAA Class 3A girls playoff game is set for 6 p.m. today at Altoona High School against Delone Catholic.

The winners of tonight’s games will advance to the state Final Four and play Monday at times and sites to be determined.
